Experiential Education: Democratizing Educational Philosophies.
Minnich, Elizabeth Kamarck
Liberal Education, v85 n3 p6-13 Sum 1999
Looks at some of the philosophical positions, especially Pragmatism, that ground and inform the traditions of experiential education, examining hierarchical philosophy and experiential education, egalitarian pragmatism and experiential education (using Jane Addams as an example), and Dewey's theory of education as expressed in "Democracy and Education." Urges equalizing stubbornly persisting hierarchies of theory and practice, knowledge and experience. (DB)
